France & Italy - May 2016

On 12 May 2016, we flew into Nice, France with a group of friends, hired a rental car and drove just across the border of Italy to spend 4 days at one of our friend's house in the mountains near Ventimiglia. I found quite a few butterflies there, some other insects and of course a few birds. On the third day we participated in the Menton Marathon, a 10 km run along the seaside of the lovely French town of Menton. The fourth day was spent near the pool to recover.
